“He was simply prepared to wear whatever his grandmother made plans for. He’s focused on honoring her and that’s it,” revealed a royal source prior to the King’s decision. “If they’d like him in uniform, I have no reason to think that he won’t oblige.”

“The Duke of Sussex has served his country and is a highly respected member of the armed forces with everything he has done for veterans,” spilled an insider regarding the royal discussion. “It is important that the Queen’s grandchildren are all made to feel welcome and comfortable as they grieve their beloved grandmother together.”

"During this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which The Queen was so widely held," Charles concluded.
